  • 2 cups water
  • 15-20 fresh mint leaves rubbed or crushed to release flavor

  • In a small pot, add the water and bring to a simmer.
  • Add the mint leaves and turn off the heat. Allow the leaves to steep 15 minutes at least. You can go a bit longer if you want a stronger flavor.
  • Strain leaves out through a strainer and pour into teacups. Add one teaspoon honey per cup and a squeeze of lemon if desired. Serve warm.
